Why Email Doesn't Work

In a survey of students, a campus found that more than 50% of students don't read emails from their institution and nearly 40% of students don't even open emails from their academic advisors, yet most universities almost exclusively rely on email for communicating with students. How can we improve student engagement and retention if we can’t reliably communicate with students?

It starts with engaging with new technology solutions and rethinking how you communicate with students on your campus. During this webinar, we’ll discuss how moving the way you communicate with students to a mobile app can help you keep those students engaged and more likely to succeed. Using a mobile solution means students have access to what they require right at their fingertips!

What you'll learn:

  • Why email no longer works as a primary communication strategy.
  • How to use mobile technology to improve and simplify your student communication.
  • How to create impactful, quick wins for your students with a mobile app in just a couple of months, without a heavy lift from your staff.

You should join if:

  • You seek to improve communication and engagement at your institution to provide a better experience for students.
  • You seek to understand how other universities use technology to support retention and engagement initiatives.
  • You are passionate about increasing positive outcomes for your students and ensuring success.
